The piemaker's favorite. Sweet-flavor with thick, meaty flesh. Small seed cavity enclosed in orange, fine-textured flesh. Mature size: 15 to 20 cm (6-8″). From late summer on, remove any blossoms or new fruit to enhance growth on fruit that is already formed. Harvest when fully mature. Allow to stand in garden a few days until skin hardens, then store in a cool, dry place. Freezes very well. Used as decorative center pieces.
